As for the gamma, the monitor is a little darker than our target curve in all signal values. Excellent color accuracy for the HP 27Q after calibration, which fixed the minor issues. Both the white balance dE and color dE were brought down and most people won't notice any irregularities. The gamma now follows the target curve very closely except in the high signal values where the monitor is slightly brighter.
Finally, the color temperature is now close to our K target. You can download our ICC profile calibration here. This is provided for reference only and should not be used, as the calibration values vary per individual unit even for the same model due to manufacturing tolerances. Coverage of the s. RGB color space is nearly perfect and this is great for daily usage.
However, professionals in the publishing industry will find the Adobe RGB coverage limited. Excellent color volume as it can display a great number of colors in various levels of luminance. It does not perform well in the dark shades due to the not-so-great contrast ratio.
Again, the Adobe RGB color volume is not sufficient for professionals. The HP 27Q shows intense signs of image retention, even after 10 minutes of cooldown. This is the worst performance we had up until now, worse than Acer GHU. However, this is hard to notice in normal usage. The HP 27Q displays our gradient test image very well. There is the normal 8-bit banding visible in the darker shades but other than that the result is good. However, it is not among the best in this price range.
Excellent performance in color bleed. When displaying large areas of a single color, no issues can be seen and the image remains uniform. The HP 27Q handles reflections very well. The light-matte finish diffuses light sources across the screen and that reduces their intensity.
This monitor's response time is great. There are 5 levels of Response Time , but we recommend using 'Level 2 fast ' since it is the one that has the best balance between overshoot and fast response time. If you find the overshoot of 'Level 2' bothersome and you see many duplications, you can switch to 'Level 1' which is slower but there are less overshoot artifacts. The HP 27Q is a flicker-free monitor and this is good as the motion looks smooth.
Unfortunately, it does not give you the option to introduce flicker so as to clear blur and make the image crisper. The monitor only displays 75Hz properly when it is used with a FreeSync compatible graphics source such as an AMD graphics card , and the monitor is set to the 'Gaming - FreeSync' Viewing Mode as shown here. However, when the monitor is used with a non-FreeSync source and sent 75Hz, the monitor displays 60Hz and skips the extra frames, which is a worse experience than just sending 60Hz.
The full FreeSync range of Hz is tear-free. The HP 27Q has an okay input lag in the native resolution 60Hz. However, it can achieve a much lower input lag when set to 'Gaming-FreeSync' viewing mode , be sure to set properly here.
This allows you to see much detail on the relatively large screen area. The 3. The only additional feature that this monitor has is the presence of a Sleep Timer that allows you to set the 'Sleep' and 'On' time of the monitor. We have seen on the internet that it sometimes includes a VGA cable in the box. There is an older version of the 27q as well, it has the same model number, but the product code is 3FV90AA. The older model has a slightly different design, and it uses a TN panel instead of an IPS, so it likely has worse viewing angles.
If someone comes across a different type of panel or if their HP 27Q doesn't correspond to our review, let us know and we will update the review. Note that some tests such as the gray uniformity may vary between individual units.
The model we've tested was manufactured in January The HP 27Q is a decent monitor for a wide range of usages. The 27F has a slightly faster refresh rate, and much lower input lag, great for gaming. The HP 27Q has a better x resolution, which allows you to see more fine details in games, and makes it easier to multitask.
The Dell UH has better ergonomics and can be positioned to your preferences with ease. It has a lower input lag that allows it to react faster to your inputs making a better choice for gamers. On the other hand, the HP 27Q has a faster pixel refresh rate, so when you watch fast-moving content, it looks smooth with a smaller blur trail. It also has better resolution allowing you to display more in the same screen size. On the other hand, the HP 27Q is brighter and can handle reflections better, so it's more suitable for a slightly brighter room with many light sources.
The HP 27Q has a better refresh rate that leaves a smaller blur trail in fast-moving content and has more screen area as it is a 27" monitor. The Acer GHU, on the other hand, has a better input lag which makes it more responsive to your inputs and can be great for many usages. The Dell UD has much better ergonomics that allow you to place the monitor as you prefer without any trouble.
On the other hand, the HP 27Q has lower input lag, which makes it a better choice for gamers, and a faster pixel refresh rate that allows makes fast motion look smooth and only leave a small blur trail. Get insider access. Best Monitors. Monitor Recommendations. View all monitor recommendations.
